FWIW the list of 12 Clue Sudoku X puzzles is now 552,950. You can get a copy of the list by using the following file access link.

Copy the part of the link between the " " symbols and paste it into the URL box of a new tab in your browser and the file should download.

Thanks for posting the list.

While my own collection had already grown to 35107, it turns out that it only contains 2 new entries to your list:
Code: Select all
000000000000000001230000000000004000005000000000600050000000720007000000001080000
000000000000001000002000034000005000000000200060000000340000000000007500008000000

I've also switched to the canonicalization method everyone else is using, no longer separating clue positions and values.
